Retro City Rampage: DX cruises to 3DS this month

Developer calls it the "definitive" version.

Nostalgia-tinged spoof Retro City Rampage is coming to the European 3DS eShop on 20th February as Retro City Rampage: DX, developer Brain Provinciano has announced. North Americans will receive this updated port tomorrow.

Provinciano called this enhanced 3DS release the "definitive" version in an interview with Polygon. "The PC version would be second, because it's also had a lot of updates," he added.

The indie developer noted that he'd updated the game upwards of 16 times in the 15 months since its initial release on PS3, Vita and PC. It later came to Xbox Live and WiiWare as well.

Several of the Retro City Rampage: DX's updates have been detailed at Nintendo Life. These include: tweaked missions, the ability to jump when firing, the option to hijack weapon trucks, a new mechanic centered around clearing the screen of cops, and a touchscreen-based map that allows you to zoom in/out and jot down landmarks.

Our Chris Donlan was a big fan of the original Retro City Rampage. "It's an adventure built of other adventures, then, and its originality comes from the manner in which everything comes together," he wrote in his review of the PS3 version of Retro City Rampage in 2012. "If you love old games - and old movies and all that other old jazz - there's a good chance you're going to love this, too."
